Prince Fielder wasn't fueled by 'roid rage

Right?

I mean, there's no way steroids are to blame for his absolute lack of decorum and composure and sanity? Is there?

Actually Prince Fielder ought to hope that some people blame his meltdown Tuesday night, when he tried to charge Dodgers pitcher Guillermo Mota 15 minutes after being hit by a pitch -- making the charge at Mota inside the Dodgers' clubhouse -- on something as basically simple as 'roid rage.

Because the other options are these:

1. Fielder is a raving lunatic.

2. The whole thing was a front, for show, for street cred.

None of the options is very good, which is why baseball needs to suspend Fielder and make it hurt. It's one thing to charge the pitcher on the mound during the game. That's bad, but it happens -- and more to the point, it is accepted in baseball. Whatever you think of it, and I happen to think it's punk posturing run amok, charging the mound is allowed.

Charging a clubhouse door is not.

Fielder can't get away with this. I don't care if it's been done before, by other players, in the past. It cannot be done now. And it cannot be done ever again in the future.

This is baseball. Not a bar brawl.

Fielder should pay. Ten games, maybe more.

And pee into a cup, son.

It's not slanderous, let him have his opinion. I agree with the others on this, if you get fined/suspended/tossed from a game, you take an immediate drug test.

P.S. Prince Fielder is the fattest vegetarian i've ever seen!!!!

Its called a Blog, and it is increasingly popular medium used by people to express thier opinions. Can it really be declared an opinion when there's no research or factual data to back it up? 

Roid rage?  Really?  I'm not sure you know what guys are taking now, but most of the steroid issues come from HGH (that's short for Human Growth Hormone, which is actually a natural occuring hormone in the body).

While there are side effects to HGH injections, they are not entirely the same as the older, and currently less common anabolic steroids.  "Roid Rage" is not a side effect of HGH.  Water retention, joint pain, arthritis, CTS, hypertension, diabetes, gynecomastia... they're all side effects of HGH abuse.  None of those are mood altering.  Maybe the fact that Fielder's parents are wack jobs, and Cecil used to steal from him might be something that effects a person psyche long-term.  At least there's more substaniated evidence of that contributing to his temper than PED's. 

After suffering through an era tainted by steriod abuse and the media looking the other way, are you really that outraged by a writer not backing down to a vegetarian meat head who obviously has some temper issues?The media went from one extreme to the other; if they were wrong to turn a blind eye, then they're wrong to wildly accuse everyone under the sun who may have yelled about a questionable call all the way to any guy who hits more than 25 HR's. 

Also, Prince is far from the first athlete with temper issues: George Brett, Tiger Woods, Carlos Zambrano, Steve Smith, Ty Cobb, Bob Knight, Kyle Turley, Lou Pinella, Raheed Wallace, John McEnroe, Latrell Spreewell, Ozzie Guillen, Billy Martin, Ron Artest, Milton Bradley, Marty McSorley... I think you get the point.  How come these guys aren't all being questioned about their steroid usage?  These are guys across multiple sports, from different ages... I'm assuming they're all guilty of "roid rage". 

Face it, Doyell masked his baseless, wild accusation as an opinion.  He's an idiot...  at least with my opinion there's some actual sustenance.

If this idiot wrote for me, he'd be terminated immediately because, if I'm correct, this is a defamation lawsuit waiting to happen.You are not correct. Multiple people have already taken the time to respond thoughtfully and intelligently to your comment.  Instead of repeating it for you, I suggest you use Google or any other search engine and find a simple explantion of what qualifies as defamation.  There is absolutely no legal basis for a lawsuit.  Thanks for posting the same nonsense twice.

And a note to CBSsports, this guy is a superstar?  Your rating system is garbage.

BowlorBust08, bring that talk to Hate Mail.  Doyel will knock your comments out of the park, kind of like he did as an all-state high school baseball player.   Sounds just like the type of guy getting beat up in school, doesn't it?  Writers who were beat up in school work for ESPN and cozy thier noses up to athletes' jock straps all day.  And how can this be the worst article you have ever read - it wasn't even an article.  Its called a Blog, and it is increasingly popular medium used by people to express thier opinions.  Luckily for loyal CBSsports readers, Doyel and other writers on this site aren't afraid to share an opinion that the subjects of the writing might not agree with.  After suffering through an era tainted by steriod abuse and the media looking the other way, are you really that outraged by a writer not backing down to a vegetarian meat head who obviously has some temper issues?

Since when is Sportsline in the business of letting pre pubescent kids get a main posting?  This Doyel child needs to be revoked for spewing pure, unadulterated drivel........ or at least have him pee in a cup to evaluate the level or crack in his system......

Honestly though, he probably just gets beat up in school a lot, and these forums allow a safe haven to spew nonsense without the fear of retaliation.

Worst article I've ever read.

Thanks Doyel for saying the things that need to be said. Yes, some fans of the Brewers are going to gripe but the fact is that the widespread steroid use is causing many of these to go off the deep end. Is Manny being Manny or is he Manny doing steroids? Was the Rocket throwing the broken bat at Mike Piazza in the WS a roid rage or what? Is him making the maniac facial expressions at the ump that got him rejected roid rage? What Conseco trying to drive over his girlfriend a roid rage or what? You are so right. Pee in the cup and we can settle this quickly. Roids are ruining the game.
